trek - kirk risk - positronika


Das Boy thinks this episode didn't have nearly enough spacecrack, compared to the others. I agree that the episode is the first genuinely serious episode we've had (with the possible exception of "Where No Man Has Gone Before," even with the Spock-yelling), and by "serious" I mean "one where a large percentage of the crew does not act drunk, horny, or insane." However, there's no such thing as "not enough spacecrack" in Classic Star Trek. Nature abhors a vacuum, and when there's insufficient crack to be had, Janice Rand will always enter stage left.
